    Yes :) This is a bug in dosbox. New glibc is able to detect these.
See Releasenotes for more info. You can disable this check (Releasenotes)
and see if it works, but this *IS A BUG*, please report it. Also, try
older/newer version.
    But, before you do so, please see what version you have (and report
such things - repo, version, FC version. How do I guess now?). I just got
http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/apt/redhat/en/i386/fc3/RPMS.newrpms/dosbox-0.63-1.rhfc3.nr.i386.rpm
and it works for me (It runs gzip.exe at least). See if it works for
you too, if not - report the bug.
